White Papers


“Surge related issues result in nearly $80 billion in losses for the US economy…. Power load cycling generates over 80% of all damaging transients. Internally, less than 20% are generated externally by lightning or Utility grid switching.”

Power Quality Specialists (follow-up to original case study)

“Community Hospital laboratory technicians identified problematic …… which also presented life-safety concerns in that particular environment… However, the “real success indicator” [at least for plant operations staff] was achieved when the Laboratory staff quit incessantly complaining about recurring equipment problems! We supplied our first Total Protection Solutions Surge Protective Device (SPD) in January 2004. These Total Protection Solutions devices typically provide the best price/performance ratio [“bang for the buck”] in the industry, particularly when factoring in their 30-year “Free Replacement” warranty.”

NEMA VSP-1-2017 (Low Voltage Surge Protective Devices)

“Electrical equipment is subject to surge damage. These everyday electrical devices are damaged by surges of the level expected in a normal electrical distribution system. The application of a surge protective device within a home or facility can alleviate the effects and save the cost or replacement for many electrical or electronic devices.”

IEEE Industry Applications Conference (reprint excerpt)

“Transient overvoltage can significantly shorten the life of electronic components, sometimes with just one spike if the voltage peak is high enough. Devices to protect electronic components and equipment have been developed and have a proven track record for ensuring that the protected components can provide service for their intended lifetime even in an environment where surges are common.”

World’s Largest Retailer

“Each test store realized a significant decrease in lighting maintenance costs due to the surge protection installed. Conservatively, the longest return on investment (ROI) in the stores evaluated during this test was less than one year. This field data was collected over a period of about 4 years (2005-2008). …All maintenance and repair associated with the electronic ballasts and lamps appear to be permanently reduced by at least 70% or more.”
